Anime of Green Gables.
A few posts back (July 14th), I linked to the opening Credits of Akage no An (アカゲのアン OR Anne the redhead). Here is a link to download 50 episodes of the series. It's a Bit-Torrent site, so I don't know if you have to pay for it or not, but it'll still be cheaper than a DVD.
Here's a description of Anne from Nippon Animation studios:
"Anne Shirley is a freckle-faced, red-haired girl, who grows up in an orphanage having lost her parents at a very early age. Anne is always cheerful and fun-loving despite being brought up without love or affection. When she turns 10, she is adopted by the old farmer Matthew Cuthbert and his sister Marilla. Anne starts her new life with Matthew and Marilla at a farm called “Green Gables”, but actually the Cuthberts wanted a boy who could help with their work on the farm… Overcoming many hardships and meeting many friends and people, Anne grows up to be a strong-minded woman."
It has been exported to neighbouring Asian countries and also to Europe (Anna dai capelli rossi in Italian, Anne la maison aux pignons verts in French, Anne mit den roten Haaren in German).
